#LifeLines. #happy #Friendship #Day #2020

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.

Happy Friendship Day.

Eid al adha #Bakrid #2020 #Mubarak.

Qurban karna apni khawahishon ko Allah ki rahh mein, feelings, thoughts and desires that doesn’t synchronise with the Quranic Wisdom. Its time we slaughter those too. Qurban your ego, jealousy, mistrust, pride and anger.

Everyone has different set of challenges and every one has different set of opportunities.A mature belief is; When good happens,There’s good in it. When bad happens,There’s also good in it.

Clean your heart with love, may Allah gives us the courage to detach ourselves from worldly pleasures and let our heart be attached to the undying contentment of akhirah.

Eid -al- adha Mubarak ✨

#Not even you.

….and just as the sun will rise tomorrow, just as the stars will go out one by one like the streetlights under your balcony.. and the sky will turn from a dark red hue to a pale shade of blue, calling out to a new horizon.. just as the crescent moon will fade and fade, become nothing and disappear around the corner like a forgotten memory on your rearview mirror… like the thoughts that are killing you right now. ..

just like this night of hurting, of despair, of feeling that you are not worthy of love, or closure , or happiness, like you’re all alone trapped inside your head and there’s nobody to hear you scream, nobody you can talk to….

i want you to promise me, you’ll embrace it. isolation is a gift. you must get used to the fact that you’re all you have. because you are all you need.

so allow yourself to break tonight. give yourself time, sink into the darkest pit of vulnerability that you can possibly descend to. let your trauma run it’s course like an uncontrollable fever through your heart and your soul and your eyes and your mouth and your mind and your gut. allow yourself the deconstruction to pave the way for reconstruction, the process that turns coals to diamonds. set yourself on fire and let the tears turn to embers, carry you through the dark and burn everything that cuts your path.

and when the sun comes up tomorrow, and the first light hits your tired, red eyes, you’ll know.

you’ll know that this is not your end. you’ll know that this isn’t where you give up on yourself… and with this realisation that you are still breathing, despite living through something that would have killed you, you will come forth into light. despite what people said. despite the darkness that swallowed you whole, you will rise.

and when you do, it will be as universal, as inevitable, as predestined as every dawn that has taken birth since the beginning of time. no force of nature, will be able to stop it.

not even you.

#waiting

There are two types of waiting. There’s the the waiting you do for something you know is coming, sooner or later—like waiting for the 6:28 train, or the school bus, or a party where a certain handsome boy might be.

And then there’s the waiting for something you don’t know is coming. You don’t even know what it is exactly, but you’re hoping for it. You’re imagining it and living your life for it. That’s the kind of waiting that makes a fist in your heart.Leaving you with unanswered questions, what if it never arrives?

Take over.

Learn to detach yourself. From things, events and basically anything that robs you of your peace of mind. Most things worldly fit into this category. Remember, you don’t need to understand why everything happened the way it did. Let it go and let the Almighty take over! ‬

Purpose.

You can continue to blame the people and the situations that have hurt you. Or you can take back your power and look through the actors. To see the Director.

Every single aspect of your life has a purpose and is by divine design. Even the parts you hate. Even the parts you try to hide from the world and yourself. Even the parts that hurt. Even the tears. The betrayal. The divorce. The loss.

You will find the purpose when you grow through this. When you allow nothing to shrink you. Or chain you. Or own you. When you stop hearing the noise of what other people are saying or thinking of you. When you stop the “what if’s”. When you stop beating yourself to a mental pulp. And never again allow someone to mistreat, disrespect, use, or take you for granted.

But most of all, you will only find peace when you finally remove the thing that has occupied God’s place in your heart.
Read that again.
Only then will you be able to truly love again. In a healthy way.

Something worthy.

Are you among those who’ll spend most of your time fixing other people’s problems but your life’s a mess? Remember, charity begins at home. The best way to help others is to help yourself first. Invest your time in being a better version of yourself; everything else will follow. ‬

Heaven or hell?

Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one is willing to die.

Well, the truth is that while we’re here, on this earth, we get to either create heaven or hell. Either is something of our own assumptions and actions.

And while we all pretend that we want heaven, we complain, argue, gossip, and cry over things we have yet to lose.

Happiness is not to be pursued, it’s not the by-product of having money, fame, or being physically attractive.

Happiness is a state of mind. Happiness is an architectural build. It’s like placing one brick over the other until it’s shaped like a house.

#success #& #failures

Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought was possible.

But first #you

You deserve someone who joins you in your craziness & doubles up your happiness.
Not an insecure idiot who forces you to suppress your own self.

You deserve a best friend first, and a lover later. 💫❣️
